How to set up an SSRS report with check box

I have a query that has an indicator field on each row. The value is either a zero or a one. I want to create one SSRS report that will have a parameter field key off this field. What I want to happen is that if the user does not check the box the report shows all records. If the user does check the box, the report only shows those records with a one for a value in that field. How can this best be set up in SSRS? This is SQL Server 2005 SP3.

I can't figure out a checkbox but can make a 2 value dropdown.

OK, in the Layout or data view go to Report\Report Parameters.

Create a new parameter of type boolean.
Available Values
Label="Only These Ones", Value=True
Label="All Records", Value=False


Then in the data view open the properties of the dataset and go to the Parameters tab.
Add a parameter such as @MyParam and use the dropdown to choose the report parameter on the right.

Then modify the query to add to the WHERE clause similar to below.
--sample query
SELECT col1, col2, col3
FROM MyTable
WHERE @MyParam = 0 OR col3 = 1

Open in new window
